Adaptation is something not one of us enjoys doing; changing your 'style' to make something work is something we do every day; it could easily be avoided.
Microsoft has worked extremely hard to make Windows 7 adapt to YOU, and make it work how and when YOU want it to. The last step in the magical transformation of Windows, is the ability to theme without patching system files. When the interface feels right, working and playing becomes much more fun.
"Give your PC a personal touch" says Microsoft:
They now provide free downloads of themes, wallpapers, and certified gadgets all compiled by Microsoft staff.
By clicking on a theme, it will be downloaded and installed, changing familiar things such as the wallpaper, sounds, icons, and the Aero glass color.
The gadgets are split into two categories: the regular windows gadgets, and the emerging Sideshow gadgets. From traffic maps, to a PowerPoint remote control, they've got a decent selection in there. The best part? They're all Microsoft-certified.
Hopefully in time, they will allow further customization of the themes especially, without patching any files. (Maybe this could be some sort of extra in the best edition?)
For now though, we'll have to live with a wide range of colors, matching wallpapers, and gadgets to go with it. It's a step in the right direction; let's hope it takes us somewhere.
